エミール・ルーダー(1914-1970)
1929年から33年まで植字工としての訓練を積んだ後,1938年よりパリに留学。1941年から42年までチューリッヒ工芸学校でアルフレッド・ウィリマン,ウォルター・ケーヒのもと,レタリングとブックデザインを学ぶ。ルーダーはリズムと緊張に満ちた斬新なタイポグラフィで同時代に大きな衝撃を与えた。1942年よりバーゼル工芸専門学校で教鞭を執り始める。アーミン・ホフマン,クルト・ハウエルト,ロベルト,ビュヒラーらとともに同校で行った独創的な教育活動のもと多くの教え子を輩出したほか,スイスの印刷専門誌「TM」への寄稿を通じ同時代のタイポグラフファ,デザイナーに強い影響を及ぼした。ハンス-ルドルフ・ルッツ,ウォルフガング・ワインガルト,ヘルムート・シュミットはじめ多数のデザイナーがルーダーの薫陶を受け,後に「バーゼル派」と呼ばれることになるタイポグラフィの流れを形成した。ルーダーが1967年に著したデザインの教科書『タイポグラフィ』は現代の古典書として,いまなお多くの読者に読み継がれている。
